Need a new turbo! My stock one kicked the bucket recently, and is beyond a rebuild. I've been looking around trying to figure out what people are recommending as far as staying with the stock turbo or upgrading. I found rebuild ones on ebay for decent prices like this one

You guys think that's a good idea to buy a rebuild turbo off ebay. I've heard both good and bad comments from doing so. But this sellers has good reviews and offers a warranty even.

But I'm looking for people recommendations. Should I stay with the stock turbo? My car is stock besides 3in dp and mbc. Was planning on a stage 1 tune, but turbo obviously didn't last long enough.

On a side note. With a stage 1 tune, does that remove the boost fuel cut or just bump it up from 15.5 psi? And do you even want to use a MBC with a tune, or should you leave the apc hooked up?

i had mine rebuilt by gpopshop to a T28 recently, have about 3k miles on it, was $800 and seems to be holding up. All i can really say on the matter from my own experience.
